are the maps or images geo-referenced (registered)?
|A:||The software has an Image Registration option, which allows to
register (geo-reference) maps using 2 or 4 known points on the map.
These points should be located as far from each other as possible (on
a diagonal for 2 points) and are defined by assigning either
Latitude/Longitude or Easting/Northing (AMG - Australian Mapping Grid)
frequently can a vehicle position be updated on the screen?
is dependant on the type of communications used. Where dial-up
and modem handshaking is involved (GSM Data modem, Satellite phone)
the connection may take approx. 20 seconds (3 positions per minute),
SMS faster; where HF radio is involved it may take closer to 2
positions per minute; where VHF/UHF radio is involved position updated
can be received approx. every 2 seconds, which results in around 30
position updated per minute.
The vehicle update frequency can only be as fast as allowed by the communications carrier, therefore selecting the right type of communications for a specific application is the primary consideration.
far back can vehicle activities/movements be viewed and re-analysed?
is no limitation on how far back tracking data can be recalled. The
selection of vehicle activities is made from a calendar-style
selection menu, which allows to select the year, month and day. The
days on which the tracking system was operational are shown in bold.
An additional choice time of day and vehicle ID is available.
the system be scheduled to operate at pre-defined times?
There are two different methods available and they are applicable to
vehicle groups not individual vehicles. The first method involves
specifying an automatic tracking start and stop time for each vehicle
group. This will poll all selected vehicles continuously for the
duration of the start/stop period at the specified polling interval.
The second method allows to specify up to 5 polling times for each
group at which the system will poll all selected vehicles once and
update their positions.
